Charleston’s own piano prodigy Micah McLaurin has continued to impress since we last saw him headlining the International Piano Series back in February. In June, he was the first place co-winner at the Southeast Piano Festival held at the University of South Carolina.

Furthermore, this past weekend, he placed second at the Ettlingen International Competition for Young Pianists. This world-renowned competition takes place in Southeast Germany in the city of Ettlingen and brings together the brightest young piano talents from around the world. At the not-quite-ripe age of 15, it’s safe to say young Micah’s future is looking good as he continues to develop his passion.
